About Me – The Wild Food Forager
I served in the British Army for 10 years which is where my interest in what you can and can’t eat was first piqued, from survival training. So while I was always loved being outdoors, I’ve been doing foraging, field-craft and survival type stuff for over 30 years, on-and-off. I’m an ‘outdoors’ person, formerly stuck in an office from 9 to 5, Monday to Friday, now making the most of my time walking, foraging, and teaching.
I’m an Ethno-botany enthusiast, and as well as the edible plants I can find in the wild, I’m also interested in the medical applications of our wild plants. Also, when I say wild, that includes everything from my garden, through the alleyways, to roadsides, field verges, hedgerows and anywhere else accessible to the public or with permission. it’s sometimes quite surprising how much of this stuff is on your doorstep.
I’m a foraging instructor with Found Food ltd, teaching foraging across the Mid-Wales area.
A member of the Association of Foragers.
A London National Park City Ranger.
A Hill and Moorland Walking Leader and member of the Mountain Training Association.
Please Don’t Forget
Please don’t forget that whilst I try to keep this site as accurate and up to date as possible, before you go picking wild plants and things, do all the research you need to first. Most importantly, if you can’t be 100% sure what it is, leave it alone.
